Hi,

I'm currently looking for a fully weighted, full sized keyboard (or digital piano), but I want one that has MIDI (preferably through USB), and ideally has onboard sounds (although this isn't a big deal necessarily). Obviously I want to spend as little as possible, but anything up to the low end of 4 digit prices would be okay.... Does anyone have any tips on this front? There's an almost endless pile of controllers out there, but I want something as realistic feeling to play as possible to a "real" piano (And yes, I HAVE considered one of those! I can't seem to find any output sockets on them though...?

Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

Ok, an old post, but...

You can't find anything? You're kidding...right? Check out Roland, Korg, Yamaha, even Casio--they all have units w/ the features you're looking for. "Cept MIDI via USB; never seen that, nor is it anything you'd want. Instead, look for a unit w/ MIDI and USB--you'll need both. If you're willing to spend 4 figures for a unit, you can spend a few bucks more for MIDI cables. You'll also want to consider the tech, like polyphony, touch sensitivity, layering, splits, etc.

At the price point you mention, you'll likely end up w/ a used unit, but there's nothing wrong w/ that--all my stuff is used. Check out CL and see what's there, then do a search on individ. units and check the features, reliability, reviews, etc. Here's a link that can get you started: https://consordini.com/best-weighted-keyboard/ and you can always check Amazon.

You do have internet access...right?
